Schedule and Materials for Computational Drug Discovery

Paper presentations should be sent within a few days of class, if not before, so they can be posted here. My own slides are now posted alongside their topic rather than date, so most slides are listed with the class immediately after they were actually shown.

Some journals linked from here require Stanford's subscription. If you need access off campus and haven't set up your browser to use Stanford's authenticating proxy yet, see the library's instructions.
